In the Flatpak version of Firefox 103.0.2 the resize handles do not appear when you hover over any of the 4 edges of the firefox window unless you hold down the left mouse button, then they appear, but you have to get the mouse pointer just right before pressing the left mouse button. I notice on several forums that this has been like this for the last 2 months, are the team at Mozilla working on a fix, cheers

Firefox just locks up. The mouse cursor can be used to resize the window, but is otherwise unresponsive, except to to minimize, maximize or close the window. If I click minimize and then restore the window, Firefox will have executed the last mouse-click before minimizing. This happens after five minutes or so after starting Firefox, whether I have only 4 or 5 tabs open, or a whole pile of tabs. All I can do is click X in top RHS, and then restart Firefox. Then click the "recently closed tabs" to get back to where I was. I have tried clearing the cache and (most of) the cookies. As well I did a complete refresh of Firefox, and disabled all the add-ons, but the problem is still there Running on a (old) Lenovo Thinkpad E545 with 16GB, Ubuntu in a SSD using a 50 GB partn with 30GB free. This problem occurs only in Firefox- all other apps continue to run!

What does the popup message 'Pending update of Firefox snap. Please close the app to avoid disruptions.', mean because that message doesn't give enough information to figure out what it means. I got that before when the last update happened and after that update every time I boot FF can't restore my tabs but I just click try again and it always works. Since I am getting the message again I thought I would try asking on the FF forums to find out what it means and maybe get the boot problem where FF can't restore the tabs when it first starts up fixed.

Kubuntu 22.04 last updated yesterday from all official Kubuntu/Ubuntu repos.

Hi all, I'm having a lot of problems with Firefox crashing pretty often. Sometimes once or twice a day.

I most often see crashes in the middle of a Webex video conference for work. But Firefox sometimes goes down in other situations that I see no pattern in.

This is Ubuntu 20.04, Firefox 102.0. Unfortunately, it's a complex environment to debug.

First, when firefox goes down, it rarely leaves a crash report behind. So I'm not getting any direct evidence as to what is happening. Second, I run with uBlock active and it is very difficult to function in the browser without long enough for the crash to happen. Third, I typically have several hundred tabs open. I have a lot of memory (64G) in my machine, and the machine doesn't act like it's swapping, so I don't think I'm running out of memory.

Any help getting to the bottom of what's going on is welcome.

I upgraded my laptop to Ubuntu 22.04 and am running FireFox 102.01 (64-bit) now.

I noticed that (by default, at least) the FireFox titlebar has disappeared. What would have been its contents are shown on the tab-label, though I usually have enough tabs open that only a few letters of the title are visible.

That being said, about 75% of the space is empty on the Menu Bar, which only lists File Edit View History Bookmarks Tools Help Why not show the page title in a pane on the right-end (or middle) of the Menu Bar?

Years ago I imported a Firefox profile from Ubuntu 16.04 to a PC running 18.04. It wasn't very hard. View Hidden Folders, find the old FF profile, copy it. Then go to the 18.04 PC, delete or rename the existing profile, and paste in the profile from the 16.04 rig. Restart the PC, Firefox came up on the 18.04 PC just like it did on the 26.04 PC.

But Ubuntu is doing something different now. Firefox is inside the "snap" folder. Apparently snap is some sort of new package mgr. (?)

I found a firefox profile a few levels down inside the snap folder: Home/snap/firefox/common/.mozilla/firefox/xxxxxxxx.default

Does snap complicate things? Or can I replace the new profile on the 22.04 PC inside the snap folder with the profile that I want to use from the 18.04 PC? Just like in the past, but inside snap rather than the .firefox folder in Home?

I am using Mozilla Firefox, ver. 102.0.1, 46 bit, snap for Ubuntu 22.04. I have two issues with saving files in Mozilla.

First, when I try to save a pdf using the CTRL+S key, it open multiple (~100) instances of save dialogue box. Initially I thought my computer got freezed, since pressing the save key didn't had any effect. I tried to move it using the CTRL+SPACE key -> Move option, and then I realized there are many such save dialogue box are open. How to rectify its behavior?

Second, it downloads the file only in system created folder (e.g. ~\Download, ~\Document, ~\Pictures, etc) and not other user created folders (e.g ~\Dropbox, etc.). The dialogue box for saving file closes without giving any warning/error message. When I check the file it is not downloaded (in user created folders). Can there be any permission issue?

I have already reinstalled the Mozilla once!

Steps to re-create: create a new campagin attempt to change the display image using the hover-button over the image on the page.

What happens: I click the "change image" button, it gives me the os file picker. I select the file i want and click open and the file picker goes away. The "progress" bar at the top of the image shows up, changes through several states it seems. Then all screens freeze, and the computer stops responding to all output.

Supplemental info: This started happening after an update from ubuntu 18.04 lts to 21 to 22.04 lts. So I know I was not using a flatpak before and I am now.

I've attempted to use strace to figure out what's happening at the time of the freeze I'll include a picture of that if this form does not cause my entire pc to freeze. But didn't really get any useful info from that. I tried reading dmesg at the time of the crash but so far the screen freezes before any relevent information pops up. I've not been able to find any logs about whats going in previous dmesg logs.

Troubleshooting steps: I've attempted the same procedure in firefox's safe mode. This does not seem to stop the crash. I've attempted the same procedure using chrome and this works as it should.

I run wxmaxima on ubunbtu 20.04. The help menu option calls up firefox (v 101.0.1 (64 bit)) to find the local on disk html files. However this brings up the error message:

File not found

Firefox can’t find the file at /usr/share/maxima/5.45.1/doc/html/maxima_singlepage.html#g_t_0025.

But this is a valid path with user access permissions and the file maxima_singlepage.html exists and has user read permissions.

So what is firefox doing in looking for this file?

I have used the ms windows 10 version of wxmaxima and the firefox help works perfectly.

Hi, Downloading files to a system directory (Linux) such as /home/me/doc/here /home/me/doc/there Have Ask me where to save files checked.

But lastDir is not a real directory I can navigate, such as /run/user/1000/doc/3dcccd48

This causes the user needs to navigate sometimes very long system directory tree for each successive file download.

In about:config I set:

 browser.download.lastDir 
 browser.download.lastDir.savePerSite	false	
 browser.open.lastDir

But every time these are obfuscated to something like: /run/user/1000/doc/3dcccd48

This introduces about 10 user interactions with mouse/keyboard for each file I download in succession.

How do I get FF to stop obfuscating real system directories for "lastDir"

Really really appreciate the help :)

The update that I ran was simply generic system updates through the app store. Notably though it was the snap store not the ubuntu software store. Don't know if that matters.
